Native English speakers speak in a way that’s easy for them and if you want to sound like an American person, you need to relax because Americans like to omit words, they like to connect sounds, etc. Below is the list of other two videos dedicated to this topic:
How to speak English fast and understand natives (Part II) ➡️
How to speak English fast and understand natives (Part I) ➡️
(1) CUT OFF WORDS. This is something native English speakers often do. It’s casual and not too professional. But it’s conversational and natural-sounding English.
Example: “good talking to you” instead of “it was good talking to you”
(2) SHORTEN WORDS. The most common examples are congrats (congratulations), thanks (thank you), totes (totally)
(3) UNDERSTAND HINTS. “It’s so cold!” This can mean it’s really just cold. But it can also be trying to hint at closing the window or turning the air conditioning off.
(4) DETECT SARCASM. Native English speakers will know how to inject sarcasm in their words and sentences. “Oh yeah, it’s so cold” could actually mean that it is hot outside!
(5) CONNECT SOUNDS. In the first video dedicated to this topic, we were talking about how hard it is to know when one word stops and another one starts because native speakers connect them together. For example, you will hear English speakers saying “Coudjou help me?” instead of “Could you help me?”
(6) “YEAH” INSTEAD OF “YES”. You can hear people saying “yeah” all the time and you can use it too. But remember, appropriate use is also key. If you are in a formal set up or scenario, then stick to your professional English.
(7) “NO PROB” INSTEAD OF “NO PROBLEM”. This is an example of a shortened phrase. “No prob” is short for “no problem”. And native English speakers are big in using this.
